Preregistration required by October 29.
Free, but limited to 20 people.

Location: Allens Creek SRA


The limestone shoreline around the point at Allen’s Creek is so dense with fossils that it’s hard to find “plain” rock! The fossil beds are filled with crinoids and corals, interspersed with geodes – remnants of the shallow sea that once covered Indiana. On a hike to and from the fossil beds, we’ll explore the broader geological story told by the rock layers exposed in the Monroe Lake area. Round-trip hike distance is about 4 miles over moderate terrain and takes roughly 3 hours.
